Welcome to Springville Elementary!


Dr. Gailen Mitchell
Principal
 
 

The Springville School is home to 447 students in Grades K-4, and 80 staff members, each school day. Our goal is to develop knowledgeable, responsible, confident citizens with a love of learning to last a lifetime. We encourage our students to create, to take chances, to become active learners and to appreciate and enjoy their learning opportunities. Building strong character, civic responsibility and respect for diversity in our students is an also an ongoing goal. We hope our children realize they can make a difference.

At Springville, we stress character education, goal setting, creative spirit and student recognition. Springville's success lies in a deep commitment to building the total child. This success begins with the entire school community working together for the academic, social and personal growth of our students. We provide many opportunities for our students to perform community service as student ambassadors, buddies for lower grades, safety patrol and school-wide service projects.

Recognizing and responding to the developmental needs and varied learning styles of our students is essential. Each child at Springville is treated as an individual, with enrichment or remediation available whenever necessary.

Students arrived at the registration table with their voter registration card in-hand and checked in with the election official (Mrs. Vaughan) before proceeding to the election booth to cast their vote and drop their choice in the voting box.
